Shaking a Case of "The Mean Reds"

outfit deets: tee: stylemint // jeans: (similar here )// bag: shoemint // sunnies: diy// shoes: 3.1 phillip lim (available here )// jewels: stella & dot

Anyone who has seen Breakfast at Tiffany's (the link will explain if you don't know what I'm talking about) knows what I mean by having a case of the "mean reds". Being blue is inappropriate because you aren't sad, you are just kind of blah. Yesterday I was suffering from a serious case and I pulled out all the stops to shake those feelings....

1. putting on a pair of metallic jeans (aka one of the "loudest" pairs of pants I own).....check

2. getting an iced skinny vanilla latte......check

3. skipping the makeup and accessories (for the most part, you guys know I need at least 2 bracelets and a cocktail ring at all times).....check

4.  running around outside with the doodle bug....check, pretty sure that's what did the trick!

So, I'm curious, what do you guys do to shake a case of the "mean reds?"

If you would like to see mine and doodle's shenanigans (including running around trying to shake away those feelings of blahness) you can follow us on instagram @doodlesmom812 or check out the What2Wear facebook page here
